It’s still there. It was also the union hall for the United Steelworker local in El Paso. Bar is not in business.

From what I can tell, this structure is no longer in use. If it is, it doesn’t look like it. Just downloaded a new/recent photo of the Mission Theatre, seen here —> http://www.flickr.com/photos/racphotography/6631289015 .. Enjoy! RAC Photography
